CALDER: American Revolution is back


American Revolution, the one time stakes claiber gelding who has a love affair with both Calder and trainer Bill White, rebounded from several dull effort when cruising to a one sided optional claiming and allowance victory in the ninth race. The win was the first for American Revolution since he defeated much tougher allowance opposition here more than a year ago.  White dangled American Revolution for a $16,000 price tag on Sunday with no takers.

The win was the third of the day and second in a row for Cruz who also took the Sweettrickydancer aboard Musical Romance with a furious late surge along the hedge. As expected, the hard campaigned Joanie's Catch looking worn out now. Was never a factor as the 7-2 second choice. She needs a break!
